math geometry help

posted by .

learning geometry i need to determine whether each pair of figures is similar. and explain why or why not: since I cant draw can you help me with this pls im so lost.
1)

triangle xyz
<x 65 degrees
<y is 65
<z is 50
line xy is 2.55
line yz is 3
line zx is 3


triangle ktv
<t is 65
<v is 65
<k is 50
line tk is 4
line kv is 4
line vt is 3.4

    Since the 3 angles of your first triangle are equal to the 3 angles of the second triangle, the triangles are definitely similar
    also notice that 2.55 : 3 : 3 = 3.4 : 4 : 4

    (2.55/3.4 = 3/4 = 3/4 = .75)

    so the 1st triangle is similar and have equal measurments

    i think 2nd triangel is similar too
    triangle tvk is that right?
